Question Character Flaws?

Something like this was on WTAworld, but who cares about that place anyhow

I'm all about self analysis, and was interested in discussion our character flaws, and ways we try to work on them

Of course flaws are great - they are what make us unique. But some have negative side effects that we could do without

Since its my thread, I'll go first


1) I'm very opinionated. I have an opinion on everthing, even a lot of things that I dont know about (in those cases i'm more interested in fishing opinions from others so that I can learn from them). However this of course, sometimes rubs people the wrong way. Sometimes some opinions should just be kept to yourself
For example, my freind from home doesn't REALLY need to know that she snores so loud that she keeps me up all night
I can also come across as if I'm attacking people who don't agree with me, which is actually usually very far from the truth. I'm jsut agressive

2) I sort of have an invincibility front. Of course, everyone knows its bullshit But i like to let on that nothing bothers me, I dont need anyone, I don't care what anyone thinks, etc etc. But I'm only 20, and I'm not quite that secure yet. In the "real world" I sort of rub some peopel the wrong way, with the whole "I dont care what the hell you think" attitude - some see it as disrespectful. It wouldn't kill me to soften up.

3) I'm too much of a smart ass. I see a joke in almost everything. Even things that aren't funny in the least. In fact I seem to recall cracking a George Bush joke in some thread on wtaworld that was talking about all these people that died I can be QUITE tacky when I'm not thinking
Of course sometimes this is good I just need to watch myself



As I said, all of those flaws have some good, but the ycan be negative.

I rub a LOT of people the wrong way

Anyhow, anyone else care to pick themselves apart ?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

OMG, where do I start?!

I share Rebecca's character flaw # 1. I can't stand it if people tell me I'm not allowed to have an opinion of something or have no right to discuss. It triggers an immediate reflex response and before I know what's happening I get into a heated arguement. It would help if I could relate my opinion about opinions in a calmer, more philosophical way, but alas!

Character flaw # 2 is directly related to # 1. I have anger managment issues. I have too many triggers and snap way too fast, but I also calm down quickly and realise I overreacted again. The only positive thing about this trigger-happiness is that it is a definite lesson and I will always have many opportunities to practice the art of forbearance.

3. I have difficulties relating my real personality to others. Hence some people think I'm too cold, while others believe I'm too emotional and a bit insane. It's all too confusing.

4. Most of the time I'm pretty optimistic, but sometimes I get overwhelmed by pessimism and am too hard on myself. Sometimes I even believe that nobody loves me , but most of the time I know that's stupid. But that just reminds me that I have to be more open and let people into my heart. I hate to be vulnerable, but there's no way around it in human interaction.

5. I could use more flexibility. I hate it when things don't proceed according to my plans.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

1. I dont make plans for longer than today.
2. I have an opinion on everything, and Im strongly inclined to disagree.
3. Im closed all to myself, and Im like a nut to crack if you want to come into my world.
4. I trust too much in myself and yet I am totally hard on myself. Everything has to be perfect.
Ok, enough for today.

wooden jesus, can i be saved? i spent all my money on a future grave.. ill cut you in on 20% of my future sins..

I lack direction.

1. I'm too sensitive. Some of you posters know that already. But I can't help it. I cry over many issues. I get upset very easily. *sigh* dumb bullcrap.

2. I worry too much. I worry for myself a lot. I even worry for other people. Worry worry worry.

3. I care about too many things that I shouldn't care about. But I'm learning to stop that........and some people think I'm becoming cold-hearted because of that,

4. I'm too open. I will give opinions to most issues. I will share anything and everything about me, since I feel that I'm proud of what I did, and I can share my experiences with others. But it can be annoying. I'm trying to change, people!!!

5. I can be sarcastic and obnoxious. Then act like a drama queen when things aren't going right. I do that when I'm bored and angry. But some people are annoyed by it. Especially older people.

6. I flirt, a bit. I don't do that much in real life. I just do it when I'm bored online. I never really mean it seriously.

7. I try to be perfect, and it doesn't work. But I still try doing that, since I'm so used to getting every single little detail perfect before presenting it. And I get angry and pissed when it isn't perfect.


and there's a lot more, I'll get back to ya after the date.

Ok, my turn, hehehe...

1) I'm very open-minded. The only thing I'm not open-minded about is closed-minded people like racists, etc. I also respect everyone's way of life and opinions (well, most of the time )

2) I'm very competitive. I WAS also very competitive at school, but that's long ago, now school is not important anymore for me, just an annoying phase of life. But in sports, I always want to win. I also don't take losing like something bad, I try to learn from it.

3) Now something bad (I've searched long to find this )
When I'm with people who are for example more popular than me, I don't always dare to say my opinion. With people I know well and friends, I'm very talkative, but not with strangers or so...

I'll probably think of something else, so I'll be back

yeah

But the problem is, they like me because I don't say my opinion. So I actually belong with them, but I don't feel good about it. I mean, why do I hang out with these people if I can't even say my opinion.
Hey, this thread helped me to solve the problem: I think I'm going to stick with my real friends instead of trying to be as popular as possible!
Thanks Reb!

yeah
